Promoting Mental Health Awareness. Promoting Mental Health Recovery.

Welcome to Cumberland/Perry Community Support Program!

The CSP concept was developed in 1977 at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and was adopted by the Pennsylvania Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) in 1984.

Cumberland/Perry CSP exchanges information with the Central Region CSP and the Office of Mental Health Advisory Committee.

The statewide vision of CSP is that: Every adult with a serious mental illness will be able to enjoy the highest quality of life possible. This includes being accepted and included in his or her community as contributing citizens; provided with easy access to humane comprehensive services and supports of their choice and offered multiple opportunities to enhance personal growth and recovery.

The Cumberland/Perry Community Support Program (CSP) Advisory Committee is comprised of individuals living with mental illness, family members, providers, professionals, and community members who work together as committed equal partners and apply CSP principles to offer hope and assure that every person with a serious mental illness will enjoy the highest possible quality of life. The Committee advises the Cumberland/Perry Mental Health and Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (MH/IDD) office on how to improve the quality of services and supports, and the Committee facilitates cooperation between providers, community organizations and stakeholders.
